It seems that it will work. I suspect that the seller will not be on ebay much longer as the BMW will crack down on the sales of their copyrighted material.
I have not tweaked the DVD files, as I had the original ones, albeit used ones that i got off the ebay - and I could not tweak the originals.

On the other hand, I wish I could use "aftermarket" maps in the BMW DVD nav, as when I was in Latin America, my nav was useless without the maps, just the sat coordinates, which did not mean much to me - after all, I am not in the open sea... lol... From the pictures of your seller, it looks like the BMW is using TOMTOM maps... which gives me hope that not all lost - my euro maps are dated 2003 and the US maps dated 2009...
